About Us:

Romsey Primary School has been educating the children of the town and district since 1865. The school was relocated to its current site in 1994. The school is located within the township, which is a growing satellite town 60km north-west of Melbourne. In 2005 the school has a student population of 397; further steady increases in school size are predicted over the next five to ten years. The school has outstanding building and equipment facilities on its 11.5ha site. Students are drawn principally from the town and immediate area; however one school bus operates in bringing students from the south and west of the town. A number of parents choose to send their children to Romsey Primary School from further a field.

The aim of all programs is to provide an excellent grounding in literacy and numeracy, extending and catering for students’ special needs and abilities, allowing all to fulfil their potential while developing powerful personal and social skills of independence, leadership, resilience and responsibility.
Romsey Primary School provides a broad curriculum in each of the eight Key Learning Areas- The Arts, English, Health & Physical Education, Mathematics, Languages Other Than English (LOTE), Science, Studies of Society and Environment (SOSE) and Technology. Specialist teaching programs are offered in Performing Arts (music, dance & drama), Visual Art and LOTE (Indonesian). There is a Literacy Intervention and Reading Recovery program. The school has a modern information and communication technology capability for students, meeting or exceeding government targets at all year levels. This technology is targeted for continual upgrades and expansion to keep abreast of current developments and has become a powerful tool to enhance classroom programs and student learning.

The organization of classes is based on a multi-age structure, which encourages and enhances individual achievement and social development. Class configuration is largely Preps, 1/2, 3/4, & 5/6. Some variance from this can occur to maintain pupil numbers in each class within student number guidelines.

Parent participation in school activities and programs is highly valued and encouraged. Opportunities for parents to make an active contribution to school life occur through Parents’ Club, fundraising, special days and celebrations, curriculum and classroom support, working bees, environmental projects and the parent gardening group. Parents and the school community are kept informed through the school newsletter “InForm,” a community newspaper facilitated through the school, “The Romsey Rag,” information sessions and family nights.

Romsey Primary School is committed to continuous improvement in all aspects of school activity. Students, staff and parent groups are encouraged to identify opportunities for improvement and undertake a rigorous process to embed improvement in the system memory. A significant commitment is made to staff professional development each year in order to achieve maximized educational opportunities and achievements for all students.

The school is a member of the Macedon Innovations and Excellence Cluster, and the Southern Ranges Schools Network. Inter-school sport for senior students is facilitated through the Cobaw District School Sports Association.

Romsey Primary School consists of three main buildings and re-locatable classroom wing. The school is well equipped with library, performing arts centre, gymnasium, art room, LOTE room and canteen. Within the spacious grounds the school has a soccer pitch, football oval, athletics track, cricket oval, basketball courts and tennis courts. Environmental projects within our school grounds that augment the school curriculum program include the frog pond area, Honeyeater Haven, Indonesian Garden, and corridor plantations.

People interested in our school, either parents of children, or professional educators are welcome to make an appointment to speak to the principal on our programs and have a tour of the school.
